oil and gas rigs from what Bangladesh
claims to be its maritime boundary . He said that Bangladesh looks forward to a
peaceful solution to this dispute with Burma .

dispute erupted six days ago, after Burma started oil and gas exploration in
the Bay of Bengal. Dhaka lodged a formal process, and both sides deployed
warships to the area.
